God, its quiet here! need more posts coz we cant use ukfn yet - its been closed for too long aint it?
anyways, I'll get stuck in. Does anyone have a clue if there are fuel cap covers out there that actually fit the fiesta mk6? coz i've been looking ages, preferably for one with a carbon fibre type design, but am at a complete loss.
One other thing, the doors on my car are driving me round the bend. I dont like the colour, so any suggestions what to do? ie, painting, using film, etc.
Havent been able to get much done yet, considering i have zero money and close to zero time, but been spraying a few bits and pieces in the dashboard (silver, i like the contrast between silver and black) but not go much further than that. found some grogeous lexus lights i'll be buying soon, and found some other bits and pieces but gonna keep them classified for the moment!!
Lol...yep it normally takes like a couple of days for replies to some posts in here!
Check out www.zsoc.com and go to the UKFN lifeboat, if you haven't found it already.
I think Dimma did some fuel cap covers for the mk6, but you can pretty much modify loads to fit. It's prob best if you paint the doors....by doors i presume you mean the interior plastic, think its like some form of Acrylontile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) but u can spray it with pretty much most paints, as it won't damage that sort of plastic.
Keep up the work even if the money's tight, it's all worth it in the end!
Thanks, that was loads of help. i really need to get working on those doors coz i cringe everytime i get in the car!!!
as for photos, once i get a scanner then sure but I'm fairly low tech right now but there has been talk in my household of gettinbg one so maybe soon! sorry i cant help. its mostly spraying some bits and bobs silver along the dash. just adds a bit of contrast. most bits are do-able
yeh, I'll speed up the getting of the scanner so i can post pics!! gonna be getting some rear lexus style lights soon, the nice black ones. so i'll be needing the photos to show you guys!! the only thing im worrying about with painting the cards is if scratched are likely. I've noticed a few on them when ive been checking them out where shoes have scraped them. i can ask ppl to be careful but i dont want scratches appearing everywhere for no reason!!
btw, matt, read on another site you were in hastings lately, I live there - do you drive near often coz it'd be amazing to check your car out.
i tihnk i'll be putting time aside next week for the door cards, no college or commitments so should be do-able
hey matt, looks like you did some nice editing again :) what bumper and rear bumper is that? looks nice :) I tried to make a grill by myself for teh front bumper. i'll take pictures tuesday when my rims are installed :) wooohooo, my car will be a beauty :)
i was just down there for the day, dont go down much, especially after i got done for my numberplate. bastids!! i only live in south london so i aint too far away.
what colour are you doing the panels? i am probally gonna do mine black.
NIGHTFLASH the rear valance is stoffler smoothed into the standard ford bumper, and lumma front bumper. the skirts are due on in the next couple of weeks when the car gets painted
